4. They would have to

 

call it UnConstitutional. I wonder on what premise the Supreme Court say it is? I think Justice Scalia's remarks showed ignorance about voting rights according to the Constitution. Wouldn't the Supreme Court be going too far and infringing on Congress's rights. Wouldn't Congress have to repeal an existing law that was enacted decades ago similar to Roe\Wade? Would it also call into question the Constitutionality of the 15th Amendment if you took Scalia's logic about the right to vote in this country? He made a comment and Justice Sotomayer asked him a question about the right to vote. Did Scalia give an answer? For the position that he holds in this country, his comment was irresponsible about the Constitution. The language is very clear in the Constitution about the right to vote. Most elementary kids can understand it. And the right to vote in my opinion is just as applicable as the 2nd Amendment for all law abiding citizens.
